STATINT 25X1 25X1. 25X1 Approved For Release 2003/08/08: CIA-RDP75B00380RO CONFIDENTIAL Journal - Office of Legislative Counsel Monday - 26 November 1973 Page 6 ? 16. - JGO) In response to a call from 25X1A OCI, for information requested by the Director, I had several telephone conversations over the weekend with members of the Foreign Affairs Committee staff. I was finally able to contact Mike Finley, Inter-American Affairs Sub- committee staff, and learned from him that RanraGantati T Michael Harrington (D. , Mass.) has not yet filed a report on his trip to Chile but that he was quoted by a backpage item in the New York Times as having said that he went to Chile with a bias and returned with the same bias. I was able to ascertain that the bias referenced would be a belief that the CIA was actively involved in the overthrow of the Allende government and that U. S. Government policies during the period of the Allende government were in opposition to the aims of that government. Mr. Harrington met with all but one member of the junta (Pinochet) during his visit to Chile. The various meetings attended by Mr. Harrington 25X1A 25X1A 17. I I- JGO) Met with L. James Kronfeld, Staff Counsel, Subcommittee on Foreign Operations and Government Information, and reviewed with him Agency correspondence started in June 1971 through October 1973 with Mr. R. W. Koch of Long Beach, California, who had written Kronfeld concerning release of information by CIA for his use in research dealing with the World War II "Liberator" pistol and its distribution. Kronfeld told me he would respond directly to Koch without further reference to the Agency telling him in effect that he had been in contact with the Agency and others and it would appear that no further information on the subject other than that already provided is available. I thanked Kronfeld for his conside ration. 18.1 JGO) Talked to Bill Hogan, House Special Sub- committee on Intelligence, Armed Services Committee, who told me the question of handling the CIARDS cost-of-living amendment would be taken up at the 8:30 meeting of the staff tomorrow morning. 25X1A 25X1A 25X1A cc: O/DDCI JOHN M.
